Tooth Forms

Section dedicated to the tooth shapes of our band saw blades.

Neutral tooth (N)

The Neutral tooth has a cutting angle of 0°. It is suitable for cutting material with an high carbon content (such as cast iron), for material with small cross sections and for thin-wall profiles and tubes.

Hook tooth (H)

The Hook tooth has a positive cutting angle. This tooth form is particularly suitable for cutting solid, thick-walled tubes and all high-alloyed materials.

P Tooth (P)

The P tooth has an extremely aggressive cutting angle. Due to its extremely aggressive cutting characteristics is most suitable for cutting high alloyed materials, exotic alloys and non-ferrous metals.

Ground tooth (R)

The R tooth is based on a high-low triple chip design recognized as one of the most efficient in engineering cutting technology. To cope with the demands of a wide range of difficult steels and exotic alloys the teeth are available with poisitve and extremely positive cutting angles.
